Cloud Security Workshop

6 hours

Dive deeper into WWT's approach to cloud security. Understand why tools mean nothing without a comprehensive framework governing the teams responsible for instantiating and managing the lifecycle of your cloud workload environments. Learn why current approaches to security are still not enough to maintain visibility and attestation at cloud scale.

What to Expect

Learn from experts who have been through the ups and downs of delivering security cloud environments. This interactive workshop will pick-up from where you are on your cloud journey and cover:

  • Security's new role
  • Embracing roles from the top-down
  • The importance of clear ownership
  • Securing DevOps
  • Iterating towards the new model

Goals & Objectives

Participants of this workshop will engage in an interactive session resulting in a common understanding of the following concepts:

  • Principles of ownership vs responsibility
  • How to scale security past blocking
  • Realizing investment in cloud through inheritance
  • Understanding and embracing DevOps principles for better security
  • Suggested framework best practices to adopt within an organization

With the above concepts considered, our teams will work together during this workshop to achieve the following objectives:

  • Identify existing business and technical imperatives/goals that can be achieved or improved upon as part of re-imagining security's role within the application go-to-market process
  • Review and agree on a prescriptive ownership model supportive of business and technical goals.
  • Establish the priority and sequence of specific activities the organization has to enable a deployment framework with security as the source of truth.
  • Create a roadmap of initial capabilities to begin activities in support of business and technical goals.

What is a workshop?

A workshop is typically a paid engagement, with predefined objectives, that results in the creation of strategic project deliverables; including: strategy roadmap, high-level architectural design, proposal or quote for implementation. Workshops may be conducted remotely or onsite.

Who should attend?

C-Level and Directors/Leaders whose scope of control includes cloud infrastructure management and application workload deployment. While this is a security-focused workshop, all relevant teams should be represented.


Establish a baseline across your teams responsible for cloud.  Everyone will share in the understanding of:

  • Why ubiquitous security does not mean security everyone's responsibility
  • The falsehood of "tearing down silos"
  • Education and up-skilling with transparency as a path to success
  • The necessity of abstraction
  • Maintaining security through parallel work-streams
